Love is in the air


Well Friday's challenge at notimetostamp is all about love. You gotta have love..all you really need is love. That's an oldie but goodie and if love is in the air then why not put it in the air, which I did on my card. I went for a sappy hearty card using my hearts from Hero Arts along with the love( up in the air) also a Hero Arts, and the wonderful Flourishes sweet peas. Yea, I know I just used it but it was just sitting there begging for me to stamp it again. Found my bling at Hobby Lobby and decided to get a little crazy and just bling all over the place. Why??? cause love is in the air and us old folks get stuck with an idea and just run with it.
We had snow up the wahzoo and cleaning it up is a pain in the butsky ( that's Polish for butt). First the dang snow blower wouldn't start, not even with the electric starter then it finally gets started and I discover after trying for 10-15 mins. I needed a break. Well getting undressed to take a relief is worse then getting the blower started ...layers of clothes to take off for a few mins. and then time to redress and hit the slopes...oh no I'm demented I'm not on the slopes I'm in my driveway trying to clean up the mess. Success, it restarts, I run ( well that's an exaggeration) up and down the driveway blowing dust to the wind and I make it. Fini and not a minute too soon as I am exhausted and worn out for the day.
Happy weekend fellow bloggers and let's hope no more little white flakes fall for the next couple of days.

Oh Pat, this card is magnificent!! Holy moly, I never would have thought to put two hearts on top of these sweet peas, but what an incredible look!!! I just LOVE this!!! A real stunner!!
I know at our age it's no fun trying to run a snowblower (I'm not strong enough to manage one comfortably) but your hilarious way of describing it sounds like a Walter Matthau movie:) You're too funny :)
I'll get started making some valentines tomorrow and let you know when I have some finished :)

At least your snow blower FINALLY started. I had to resort to the shovel and then whine to Mr Jeff about my ailing machine. Of course, his first question was "did you put gas in it?" Grrr!
Your card is beautiful, by the way. Sweet peas were a great choice. I'm not sure that I'll be able to do the Valentines this year. Boo Hoo! Barely getting the cards done I need to make for my regular birthdays and such, plus I'm starting to pack up many of my stamps, since I only have room for barebones stuff at Jeff's. Please don't kick me to the curb if all I can do is cheer you on this year. Good Luck getting your goal and then some!

Your Valentine is so pretty, Pat...and I love the little hearts!

I've been shoveling our driveway by hand, and it's my best exercise in the winter...lol.

I'm planning to make some cards for the kids too, so I will let you know when I have some to send. ;)

So thrilled to read Cards4Kids Valentine cards are 'stage right' on call! I will try for a class full of handmade cards to the kids. Last year students were so pleased to have a part!
Bling 'em, P.A,! That's some snazzy sweet pea Valentine. Those Bozeman Sweet Pea Festival folks will be ooozzing with grins. Well done.
Keep Looking UP!
